A page finish
Amazing how much I can get done when not working all week (aside from trying to find a job). Page 2. I'll fill in the border when it's farther along. As such, this will be my last stash purchase for a while. (Damn you Herrschners) And I shall try to not sta...

DWTS Season 24: Week 10 Night 2
Last episode of the season. Who will bring home the mirrorball? Simone. That was a short little dance. Heather is probably the only female celebrity that could've blended in with that routine. Maybe normani. Heather should be in the finale.  I have no idea ...
